Abby Inglett

ABBY INGLETT is originally from Wisconsin, and grew up taking ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary classes for 13 years in La Crosse. Quickly discovering her passion for ballet, she joined the pre-professional Ballet La Crosse where she studied with her late mentor and teacher, Kennet Oberly (Stuttgart Ballet) and his wife Larissa Oberly (Estonia National Ballet). Abby spent her summers dancing with the Classical Ballet Academy of Minnesota, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, The Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts, and the University of Utah, her alma mater. While studying at the University of Utah, Abby had the opportunity to perform featured roles in many classical and contemporary works such as La Vivandiere, Press Against the Glass, and Ebb & Flow. In the spring of 2021, she graduated magna cum laude with her BFA in Ballet and minor in Disability Studies. After graduating, Abby was one of eight featured dancers from around the world cast in Mute, Dissonance Dance Theatre’s film about dancing through COVID-19 in 2020. Shortly following, she moved across the country and began her first season with Ballet Spartanburg! Her favorite role during the 21-22 season was Dewdrop in The Nutcracker, and she is so excited for what’s in store for the 22-23 season!

Ballet Spartanburg

Education. Outreach. Performance.

The joyful picture above of children from Sidewalk Hope, an inner-city ministry in Spartanburg, captures the essence and innocence of joy, hope, and the connections that are created when we dance.  Sidewalk Hope participated in the 2018 So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg! community event, a fundraiser in partnership with 10 local organizations. The picture above reflects opportunity, joy, happiness, dance and above all, who we are as an organization: education, outreach and performance. 

The happiness in dancing on stage is reflected in this precious little dancer's eyes and body.  Arms open, lights aglow, feet planted firmly on the stage, basking joyfully from a successful performance. This is the feeling we have as we anticipate returning to the stage this October with the premiere of Carlos Agudelo's, The Wizard of Oz. Ballet Spartanburg and its Board of Trustees and staff will monitor and adjust all health and safety precautions as directed by the CDC. We are ready to dance. We are ready to see our audience. We are ready.

Thank you for your continued love and support for 55 years. Onto our 56th season we go! Now follow the yellow brick road and grab your SEASON TICKETS TODAY!
